Implemented on 1 July 2017, the Australian Bankers Association (ABA) Conduct Background Check Protocol is a protocol, that is used by banks when hiring to find out better information about a job applicant’s past employment history and conduct record. This is designed to create more consistency in hiring so individuals with poor conduct records can't move from one job to the next in the banking industry undetected.

Background checks can go back a period of five years and subscribing banks must request the information as part of their recruitment process, as well as respond to requests about current and former employees.

Implemented in March 2017, the Australian Bankers Association (ABA)   Reference Checking & Information Sharing Protocol was created to promote and improve better information sharing about the performance history of financial advisers focusing on compliance, risk management and advice quality.
